Jawitz Properties, Swellendam

The historic town of Swellendam is the third oldest colonial settlement in South Africa. Nestled beneath the Langeberg Mountain range, Swellendam offers a pastoral, relaxed living environment that makes it an ideal location for holidays or a tranquil retirement.

Swellendam was established in the 17th century as the Eastern outpost of the Cape colony. The town has a colourful history, which includes a brief period in the 1700s when Swellendam became an independent republic, before being absorbed by the British Empire.

Today this peaceful farming precinct boasts a mild Mediterranean climate, a low crime rate, access to numerous popular tourist and scenic destinations, access to the highest-quality, locally grown farm produce and a dynamic blend of cultures.
